Of course, I have to use technical terms when describing my reading habits. This time it’s comparing circuit types.
In the not so distant past, I read in series. Not as in The Sorcerer’s Stone, Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, well sort of, I do tend to read series books together, if they’re all published, but I mean something else. I used to read one book, stay up until all hours and repeat the next day with a new one. Now I read in parallel. I have multiple books in various states of being read.
So for the week of July 29, 2013, here’s what my TBR pile looks like.
I just finished Black Beauty about an hour ago. This link takes you to a free download. I will start on my next 101 chapter books list with Because of Winn-Dixie. It’s short so, I’ll probably have it read in a day or two. All of a Kind Family came in from the library. It’s not on this list but it should be. The book is a re-read from grade school and one of my favorite childhood books. It’s the story of a Jewish family in turn of the 20th century New York City. Think Rebecca Rubin of the American Girl Doll series.
In my pleasure reading pile, I’m halfway through Camy Tang’s Single Sashimi which I actually won in Mary Vee’s blog drawing. Yay! She now has a fan who will likely evolve into a tribal reader. I also got Jody Hedlund’s A Noble Groom from the library, so it’s next on my list. A Noble Groom came from Nancy Kimball’s Fiction Heroes Features. Where I got a tiny spoiler. I found out the heroine’s daughter has a really awesome name!
For my BBC 100 book challenge, The Count of Monte Cristo is on my iPod for listening while doing laundry, dishes, etc. I’m on track 15 of 119, so that one will be with me for a while. Librivox offers free recordings and my link is for a $0.99 version of the book.
What’s on your reading list for the week?

Tell me more about Librivox…
You can get an app for your phone. Search for “free audio books” in App store, Google Play, or Kindle app store and download the player. I have one for my iPod Touch and one for my Google Nexus. My iPod one says “Audiobooks” with a book & headphones with a green background. My Nexus has a similar design on a purple background and is called LibriVox AudioBooks. Pretty much every classic book in the public domain is available from Librivox. A lot have great recordings and some have only one reader which is nice. Others have multiple readers. So far, so good, the readers have been from good to excellent with a chapter or two from a mediocre reader.
Awesome blog yoou have here
